Ryan Gosling returns as Sierra Six as Netflix officially announces that “Grey Man 2” is happening. After working with Marvel Studios for several years and making some of the biggest films of all time, the Russo brothers focused their attention on something else. In the end, this led to a long work on the adaptation of the Gray Man. In the 2022 Netflix movie based on Mark Greaney’s novel, Ryan Gosling plays Sierra Six, an experienced CIA assassin who reveals the grim truth about who he works for and turns the agency against him. The Grey Man includes Chris Evans’ Lloyd Hansen hunting for Six, and Six’s uneasy partnership with Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas).
Touted as Netflix’s most expensive movie to date, The Grey Man has been given a lot of attention. Reviews of the Russo Brothers’ latest film were not good, as evidenced by a mixed 48% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, their participation and the star power of Gosling, Evans and de Armas, as well as a large Netflix subscriber base, gave the film a path to success. There was always hope for that, as the Grey Man finale leaves room for sequels and spin-offs while Netflix was happy with how the film went.

There is also no word on whether Chris Evans will return in “Grey Man 2”, nor on confirmation that other actors such as Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick, less often Jean Page and Julia Butters will return. The ending of the Grey Man definitely indicates that the last four actors will be seen again as the Sierra Six story continues. The announcement of “Grey Man 2” is also accompanied by news that a mysterious additional film “Grey Man” is in development.
Netflix’s confirmation of “Grey Man 2” should hardly be surprising, even despite the mixed assessment of the film by critics. The streaming service wants to create several franchises, and “Grey Man” has always been one of them. However, it will be interesting to see how Russo will potentially be able to handle the criticism of the first film in the sequel. Overall, those who really enjoyed the movie will surely be thrilled to know that more Sierra Six is coming to pay off the installment of the Grey Man sequel, while those who were disappointed in the first movie will have to hope Grey Man 2 is even better.
